Avian superlatives

Well the quality of the wildlife photography has not improved, but the wildlife has. A pair of great blue herons joined their cousins the great egrets at the marsh Wednesday evening, making it an even better show. The cormorants continue to host this avian reunion of the "greats." The big blues obviously were in charge, perched atop neighboring trees like the angels atop Charley Brown Christmas trees decorated with egrets.

There are always blue herons around the marsh, but whether these two are regulars or just passing through I can't say.
